How to Draw a Seahorse for Kids

Artist: Dawn / October 6, 2011

Step 1.

Begin with drawing two circles, one for the head and another for the body. Connect the two shapes with an arched line which also serves as the shape for the horse's curved back.

Step 2.

Using the shape you just drew in step one, begin sketching out the actual form of the horses face, jawline, and the body. The lining is uneven and notched.

Step 3.

Draw in the fins on the back of the jaw like so, and then draw in the large eye and eyeball. Make the lining for the mouth, and then draw the texture lines on the back of the head.

Step 4.

Draw out the rest of the seahorse's body and make sure that you draw the tip or end of the tail curled upward at the bottom. The lining for the back should also contain notches.

Step 5.

Add texture lining on the back of the body and then clean up the drawing. Great work everyone I hope you had fun.

Step 6.

Here is the line art when all is said and done. I hope you liked this tutorial on drawing a seahorse for kids.
